RKB Right Solution for Renewable Energy
Wind Turbine Power Generators need a high level of durability and reliability so every bearing in the Wind Turbine design and manufactured base on maximum durability and life cycle. RKB, as a Swiss organization manufacturer of technological roller bearings up to 1980mm, is developing special anti-friction bearings for the Renewable energy industry. Thanks to its comprehensive quality control standards, RKB bearings is one of the world’s top suppliers of industrial bearings, with clients in over 55 countries in all levels of industrial applications. RKB Europe SA is certified ISO/TS 16949, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, ISO 27001, and ISO 10002 by URS (UK). RKB industrial bearing plants are certified ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 by Lloyd’s.
Wind Turbine Main Shaft:
Spherical roller bearings are the most common bearing type used in wind turbine main shafts. RKB Tough Roller self-aligning bearings have outstanding performance characteristics with respect to carrying high load and reliability, which can enable them to meet service life needs of more than 20 years. General Characteristics for Wind Turbine main shaft bearing is very slow speed ( Max 25 r/m), Temperature -40F to 176F and high load applied in varying directions.
Wind Turbine Gearbox:
A gearbox is typically used in a wind turbine to increase rotational speed from a low-speed rotor to a higher speed electrical generator
- RKB Tapered Roller bearings (Single row and Multi-row)
- RKB Cylindrical Roller Bearings (Single row and multi-row)
- RKB Thrust Bearings (Single and Duble direction)
- RKB Ball Bearings
It is a critical component in the wind turbine with the lang service life. The yaw drive is used to keeping the rotor facing into the wind as the wind direction changes in the wind turbine. RKB Solution for Yaw drive is:
- RKB Cylindrical Roller Bearings
- RKB Spherical Roller Bearings
- RKB Tapered Roller Bearings
